Here are the 9 wedding-dress trends that will be huge in 2020:

1 Statement sleeves

According to the COSMO Style team, there are no more boundaries when it comes to ‘the perfect wedding dress’. Want to rock billowing sleeves and look like you’ve just stepped out of a fashion editorial? We say, ‘I do’! Also, Heidi Klum rocked some hella statement sleeves in a Maison Valentino gown, earlier this year. We LOVE.

2 Twin sets

Influencer Stephanie Claire Millar (only one of the most-followed women in Australia), just got married in the ‘wedding dress of her dreams’ and showed us that wearing a midriff-baring skirt-and-bandeau set is an upcoming trend for the new year. Although this design may seem like a risky choice for some, Stephanie collaborated with Melbourne-based bridal boutique, One Day Bridal, to custom-make her look proving that it can indeed be done in class.

3 Side slits

For those badass brides who aren’t afraid to show a little skin, the side slit adds the perfect amount of sexy whilst still keeping things classy. It also makes things a little easier when it comes to dancing as we all know the struggle of trying to move freely in a super-fitted floor-length gown.

4 Statement veils

When Hailey Bieber wore a custom-made veil by designer Virgil Abloh, it got us thinking, are long, statement veils the new thing? Yes, they are – and we all know how great they look on the gram! P.S. Don’t forget, you can always take it off post ceremony.

5 Romantic ruffles

The bigger, the bougie-er! Whether you’re a maximalist or a minimalist, ruffles are a fun detail that can take a dress from zero to hero in no time. They add the perfect amount of visual interest.

6 Anti-white hues

Make like Gwen Stefani or Reese Witherspoon and go for an unconventional, anti-white wedding dress. White is the traditional way, but let’s be honest — it’s the 21st century, people. Blush and champagne are subtle and feminine hues to wear in place of white and ivory.

7 Pants with a train

Get suited in a sleek dress alternative that sees tailored trousers with an dramatic train. Put your post-ceremony dance-floor moves at ease by opting for a detachable train.

8 Serious sparkles

Don’t let anybody dull your sparkle on your big day. We LOVE this subtle-sequin one piece with an asymmetrical neckline. Bring on the bling! Note: This puffy-shoulder look is back from the ’80s.

9 Statement headgear

In other words, a crown fit for a *queen*. Statement headgear such as gem-encrusted Alice bands and oversized botanical bands are a total hit right now.
